    Before i take the plunge into rooting and flashing a custom ROM, I understand that i should have my RUU.

    HTC Desire GSM running Froyo

    Baseband - 32.44.00.32U_5.09.05.30_2
    Software Version - 2.13.720.2

    1) Ive looked over at shipped-roms but couldnt find it. Would appreciate it if anyone could pointmetowards the RUU.

    2) In the event that its not around, do i need to make a Gold card?

    3)Slightly off-topic, but since im considering flashing to CM7, the page over at xda here mentions that i need to update my radio. Do i really need to since im already running Froyo ?

    Appreciate any help, Thanks!

    No, you don't need to update the radio.

    Thanks guys.

    After reading the FAQ, just to reaffirm, since the RUU doesnt exist, i guess ill be creating a Gold Card after all.

    The most important thing is not an exact match of software version - a newer one is fine. But is there one for your phone's network or region?

    A goldcard is not a bad idea anyway.
